Experience with animals and own pets

I always had my own pet growing up. I adore animals and wasn't the little girl growing up playing with dolls - I always preferred to go out and play with my pets!

I have a sweet Labrador named Shandy - she is my everything! She was born in 2009 and in 2011 she had the most adorable six puppies. Last year when I took her for her weekly long walk to the river I noticed that she is not normal. I immediately took her to the vet and she had Spirocerca known as the "The Silent Killer", I couldn't wait to finish my daily duties just to be with her and cuddling with her in her cage for hours hoping for the best. As a proud mommy, I know that my little Shandy is a strong dog because she won the fight, she is doing well and enjoying her river walks again.

At the moment we have 3 adorable Pekingeses, 3 Labradors, 4 Cats and 1 Parrot at home and I love them all as they are part of our family. I am able to take care of them all when my I am home alone.

I have experience looking after the pets and homes of friends and family when they go on holiday.
